It's Great to Be 8!!!

 At least Ally thinks so! 

On February 4 Allyson chose to be baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! She has been so very excited. She chose rainbow cupcakes with clouds because of a song she likes about baptism. We found her a dress. She got to share the program with another girl that was getting baptized from our ward but she got to choose the opening song, and a musical number, who gave the opening prayer, and who gave the baptism talk. She chose who baptized her, who confirmed her and her 2 witnesses. Unfortunately one of the witnesses got called away on a search and rescue search out in Park Valley but another uncle filled in. Afterward we went to Ally’s grandparents house and had her cupcakes with ice cream. She got lots of gifts as well.  Thank you everyone for coming and sharing this special day with Ally and us. It means so much to us! Ally also got to go up to the pulpit at church the next day and receive her baptismal and confirmation certificate. She bore her testimony in sacrament meeting. It ended up only being 3 sentences long because she was so nervous, but she told me her testimony before church and it was the sweetest testimony. Simple, honest, true to her heart. It makes me feel like I’m doing okay by her. Thank you Ally for being a shining example to me.
